Immediate surgical treatment of patients with multiple injuries augments the proinflammatory immune response in the early phase of recovery as determined by increased IL-6 and sTREM-1 plasma levels. If not required solely for damage control, the early second hit from additional surgical stress might promote posttraumatic complications by surcharging the innate immune response to injury.
